When you’re talking destination weddings, there’s a whole lotta places to pick from in the wide world, including the nice country garden your great-aunt got married to, back in the good ol’ days. But when you’re talking intimate, select destinations where you and yours can celebrate getting together, officially – the list of meaningful places, that match the emotion of the event, gets very… countable.
Which is why when it comes to destination weddings, Fiji has a permanent spot. It’s not as outrageously expensive as Bora Bora, Tahiti, or crowded like Hawaii, or remote like Patagonia. Fiji enjoys a sweet spot when it comes to costs, distance and connectivity, and can holds its own when it comes to natural beauty.
And this year, we’ve rounded up a selection of Fiji destination weddings that are hosted by luxurious island resorts of Outrigger Fiji and Castaway Fiji. Both the resorts are set on their own islands, are cocooned away from the mainland bustle, and offer 5-star hospitality as well as locations.
The first is a simple renewal of vows ceremony at the Outrigger Fiji. Easy, worry-free and yet incredibly meaningful for couples who want to celebrate their bond of togetherness. The ceremony is less than a half-day affair and has a choice of venues – the resort’s beautiful beach or the Reef Garden. The inclusions bundle in the services of a coordinator and a minister, a cake, tropical flower arrangement, and even a dinner for two. From AU$1508 a couple, it’s a powerful gesture that becomes a lifetime’s highlight.
All right, it’s time for Castaway Island to step up. From AU$2,298 a couple, the resort offers a Fiji getaway wedding which can work either with stays, or as a stand-alone affair. The couple has the freedom to host their wedding at Castaway and have their stays on another resort, or keep it all in one place. The ceremony includes a bridal bouquet and boutonniere, a warriors’ escort for the bride (trust us, the entry is so worth it!), floral arrangements, a choir, a dedicated wedding coordinator and minister, a wedding cake, a dinner for two and even a champagne cruise around the island! But that’s not all – there’s end-to-end wedding requirements, from visits to the Nadi office for the apostle stamping, the registration process… all taken care of. Feel free to add stays, meals, and add on your honeymoon!
But what if you prefer a traditional chapel wedding as a setting? Worry not, Outrigger Fiji’s here for the rescue. The resort has its own chapel, where couples can have a full-on traditional Fiji-style Bure Ni Loloma wedding. The package includes services of a wedding coordinator and a church minister/ celebrant, the marriage license, a bridal bouquet and tiara, a groom’s buttonhole, professional arrangement of sweet-smelling tropical flowers, a single-tier wedding cake and the resort’s serenaders to boot. Plus, a post-wedding romantic dinner, because it’s just an essential necessity on the big day. All this, from AU$3,434 per couple – supremely customisable, too!
But let’s add some stays and meals to the mix. With all the inclusions above, but more. The ‘Outrigger Intimate Wedding’ adds on a reception for 10-30 guests with an unlimited standard beverages pack for two hours, four nights’ stay for the couple with daily breakfast from AU$4,698 per couple. The package also bundles in the Outrigger’s Talai personal butler service and more sundry perks, plus you can get group rates for accommodations, transfers, meals and more for friends and family.
Want to add on a honeymoon, too? Oooh, you shouldn’t have thought it, but we got just the deal for you. The ‘Fiji Tropical Summer Dream Wedding’ bundles in the full wedding and reception, ups the guest count from 10-30 to 30-100 people, throws in a week’s stay – you can arrive in Fiji, relax a day, and go over the plans with your wedding coordinator, schedule games and fun with the mates, have the wedding on the third day, relax through the next few days with a honeymoon. We even throw in a choice – you can stay all the week at the Outrigger, or … have the wedding, say sayonara to the guests and quietly zip off to Castaway Island for a three-night epic honeymoon. All in one package, starting from AU$7,398 per couple. It’s truly a superb itinerary, even if we do say so ourselves.
